Las Vegas hot spot, XS Nightclub inside Encore Resort, has unveiled a new specialty cocktail, the Five Star, priced at $5,000 in celebration of the venue's five year anniversary.

The drink will only be available in 2014 in honor of the landmark year.

The Five Star is named for the level of service found at Wynn Resorts, which collectively holds more Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star awards than any other independent hotel company in the world.

The cocktail is a blend of liquors including Louis XIII Rare Cask 42.6, Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 23-year, Martini Gran Lusso 150th Anniversary Vermouth, D.O.M. Benedictine "Black Monk" 500th Anniversary Edition, along with Peychaud's Bitters, Angostura Bitters and garnished with flamed orange oils.

The drink is made tableside by one of the expert bartenders and delivered on a gold tray.

This addition to the menu joins The Ono, the venue's specialty cocktail which has been in place since the opening, highlighted by Charles Heidsieck Champagne Charlie 1981 and Louis XIII de Remy Martin Black Pearl cognac.

The Ono, priced at $10,000, comes with men's sterling silver XS cufflinks and a woman's 18K white-gold chain with a black pearl pendant.
